Echuca Racing Club chief executive Leigh Newton said the track is looking it’s best.

‘‘We have had three meetings in the past 30 days,’’ Newton said.

‘‘Being able to keep the track in the amazing condition that it has been in since the renovation means that we are expecting really solid conditions for racing.

‘‘We have the usual dining and bar facilities, the activities for the kids as well, so it will be a great day for families.’’

Newton said the club loves having weekend events.

‘‘Weekends means you can get the whole family down to the races, sit out on the grass in lovely weather and really enjoy yourself. It’s a pretty wonderful day.’’
